Parents guide to E-safety

Does your child use any of these?

  • a mobile phone
  • the Internet
  • a social networking site such as Facebook, YouTube, Bebo or Twitter
  • MSN

If the answer is yes, then your child is potentially at risk.


To help parents, grandparents, carers keep up with the fast pace of the ever changing world of technology, Durham County Council have developed a "Parents Guide to ESafety". As you would protect your child in the real world, you also need to keep them safe in the virtual world.

This handy guide can help you with:

  • useful tips on how your child can keep safe
